Some people love this film.
Some people hate this film.
I just leave the cinema with a shrug with the knowledge that I’ll probably never voluntarily see this film again.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Putting aside the controversy surrounding the fact that this is a story set during the Civil War without a single black person in sight, I did not really get what Sofia Coppola was trying to say with this film.
Was Colin Farrell the villain of this story or was he just punished by Nicole Kidman for giving into the sexual advances of Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst. I suppose this is trying to be a proto-feminist story, but it left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.
At least the cinematography was good.
An entertaining Spaghetti Western homage, though my patience started to wear thin when Tarantino decided to continue the film half an hour after its obvious climax.
